Tasting Notes

Vinous 93

When I last tasted a vertical of the estate’s wines a few years ago it was the 1996 Vigna San Giuseppe that was in an awkward stage of its development, today it is the 1997 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe that is in a similar place, which reinforces my impression that the Cavallotto Barolos are best tasted either immediately upon release or after at least age ten, but not in between. The 1997 San Giuseppe is an opulent Barolo loaded with smoke, tar and sweet dark fruit on a richly-textured, sumptuous frame. The wine has lost some of the baby fat it had a few years ago and seems to be turning more and more classic with each passing year. Today the finish is a bit hot, but that has not been typical of this wine in past tastings. It remains one of my favorite 1997 Barolos, even if it is somewhat disjointed in this tasting. Alfio Cavallotto says 1997 is the first wine that reflects the relatively recent trend towards warmer vintages. [Antonio Galloni, 08/01/2007]
